Posted

TALLAHASSEE — On Aug. 5, Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee recognizes this year’s nationally accredited and affiliate Florida Main Street programs. A total of 48 participating Florida Main Street programs were recognized by the National Main Street Center.

“Congratulations to this year’s nationally recognized programs,” said Secretary Lee. “I am proud to celebrate the hard work and dedication of all of Florida’s Main Street programs. Your commitment to your local communities is inspiring, and I look forward to your continued achievements.”

All participating Florida Main Street programs complete an annual evaluation by Florida Main Street staff to determine their accreditation status. Accredited programs must meet a series of rigorous standards defined by the National Main Street Center and Florida Main Street, as a Coordinating Program partner. Affiliate status is provided to programs that have not yet met the required standards to achieve accreditation.

A total of 40 Florida Main Street programs were recognized as accredited by the National Main Street Center. Additionally, eight programs were recognized as affiliate programs.

Among the 40 Florida Main Street accredited programs for this year are:
• LaBelle Downtown Revitalization Corporation
• Okeechobee Main Street
